Renault India has commenced the mass production of its brand new compact SUV Renault KIGER at its world leading manufacturing facility in Chennai. Dispatches have also started to Renault’s network of more than 500 dealerships across India. Renault KIGER is the latest in the line of revolutionary products to be first launched in India, followed by other markets.
Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director – Renault India Operations; Biju Balendran, Managing Director & CEO – RNAIPL; Krishnan Sundararajan, Managing Director – RNTBCI and Silvio Roca, DMD – RNAIPL with Renault KIGER as it rolls out from the Assembly line.
The Kiger has a lot of competition and it starts with its fellow rival called Nissan Magnite. The Magnite currently is the most affordable compact SUV and the Kiger would challenge that. The Kiger also has the same engine options but gets more options in terms of gearbox options. Then you have more expensive compact SUVs like Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue which are having a lot more features but have a bit less space while costing a lot more. Then the Maruti Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser and Tata Nexon are also more expensive SUVs with bigger engines plus more features (in case of the Nexon) plus have more space. Like Nissan, Renault is targeting the space below the current premium subcompact SUVs and aiming to create a new mini segment there.
